Kangana Ranaut asks the media to boycott Grammy and Oscars for not remembering the late legend Lata Mangeshkar.
2022 Oscars and Grammy recently took place and forget to give the Memoriam segment to the late Lata Mangeskar.
Every year, both prestigious award ceremonies have an ‘In Memoriam’ segment where they mention all the great artists who left the world. In the 2021’s they mentioned late actors Irrfan Khan and Sushant Singh Rajput. But this year Lata Mangeshkar’s name did not come up and this made number of people upset.
Looking forward to the above issue, Kangana Ranaut urges to boycott of both the Oscars and Grammys by the Indian media. She says that these award shows just impersonate international award shows when they do not really respect geographical and ethnic differences.

She posts her thoughts on Instastories saying, “We should boycott these snooty western awards…
We must take strong stand against any local awards who claim to be international and yet ignore and intentionally sideline legendary artists because of their race or ideologies. Both Oscar and Grammy failed to give tribute to Bharat Ratna Lata Mangeshkar Ji. Our media should totally boycott such biased local events who claim to be global awards.”

She was a miraculous singer, with a miraculous voice. It is difficult to find adjectives for her. How much ever we talk about her, it is less. You can’t bind her in words.
She is beyond words.”We had written the song for a film. I remember I had told her when you give an autograph you can use this (the lines of the song) ‘Meri awaaz hi pehchan hai aur ye hai pehchan”
Lata Mangeshkar will forever be the Queen 👑 of Music Industry and her work will always be an inspiration for the coming generations of singers.
